My installation of logwatch did not detect I was running Nginx and thus did not create the configuration files for me. Here is how I fixed that:
This will only work if you use the combined access log format. Create the following file:
and insert the data below:
LogFile = /usr/local/nginx/logs/access.log Archive = /home/website/logs/old/access.*.log.*.gz # Expand the repeats (actually just removes them now) *ExpandRepeats # Keep only the lines in the proper date range... *ApplyhttpDate
Hopefully that helped someone out.
